The Commercial Services section at the Gwynedd Archaeological Trust is the first point of contact for all client based archaeological project work. The key aim of the Commercial Services is to provide a comprehensive and professional service to all clients who require archaeological input to meet their requirements. We can provide expert advice, and undertake all aspects of archaeological work, from desk based assessments to academic publication.

We have a dedicated team of local archaeologists and are able to bring to each project our in-house expertise and experience, utilising our existing knowledge of the archaeological activity that characterises the area. Our team includes fluent Welsh speakers. The team is readily available for work throughout North Wales and further afield.

We have played a significant role in all major regional civil engineering projects. These have included the construction of new roads, including the A55 dual carriageway, improvements to the A470, the A499 and the A489. Other engineering projects include new water and gas pipelines, where the Trust, working closely with the clients and with the archaeological curators, has been able to instigate a much improved method of working, resulting in a more efficient service to the contractor. The Trust has worked closely with the Welsh Government and has provided all archaeological services for the development of two major new business parks within the local area. These have involved the assessment, evaluation and excavation of large areas of land (40 to 50 hectares), the results of which have made a significant contribution to archaeological research within both Wales and the United Kingdom.

Gwynedd Archaeological Trust is a Registered Organisation (RO) of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA), and complies with CIfA's code of conduct.

All staff are CSCS registered and are experienced in the effective archaeological, administrative and financial management of all contracts.
